LIVING THE PROCESS
HAND BATIK CHRYSANTHEMUM
A cornerstone of the NM brand is that we don't create products to be sold, but instead, to be loved. The hand of the maker is felt with every piece. On her latest trip to Bali, Nat spent time with artisans at the Batik Workshop immersing herself in a new take on the traditional Batik method. After stamping the fabric with wax, the entire piece is bleached before boiling. The final product: one of a kind traditional Batik fabrics with the brightness of tomorrow - pieces steeped both in tradition and innovation; a respect for the past with excitement for the future.
SHOP BY PRINT
Inspired by the geometric spirit of traditional Sumbanese batik prints and the duality of masculine / feminine energy encapsulated by the region. Strong graphic lines meet a vibrant seasonal color palette to create a modern patchwork perfectly complimented by the ultra-feminine flow of our silk.
Our most traditional print of the season, Snowflake was designed using a traditional Balinese floral often seen in batik prints. The juxtaposition of the airy chiffon and the dusty, masculine palette offers a balance between the hyper femininity of the print and fabric. To be worn with a slip or thrown on over a cute bra and silk tap shorts à la Natalie.
Looking back to move us forward; Natalie played with both the scale and screens of one of our most beloved prints, Wildflower, to create this season's Petit Fleur. By shrinking the scale, Natalie created print breaks in the fabric allowing both the print to breathe and adding the hard/soft geometric play you will see throughout the season - a moody pallet of masculine neutrals making it the perfect choice for the season.
